Dear Joan Peterson (aka “japete”),
Since you seem to be having such a hard time understanding the concept of “zombies”, much less why anyone would want to shoot them (helpful hint: THEY EAT BRAINS), I thought I might take a moment to offer you a suggestion.
Just three hours south of you in Morristown, MN, Ahlman’s Gun Shop is […]
Why do "gun control" extremists hate women? Hold that question – we will come back to it.
I have to admit, the color pink does nothing for me. This is not some sexist statement; the color just has no particular attraction for me, and its extreme overuse by Hollywood socialites has all but soured me on the entire concept.
Furthermore, Better Half and I are both somewhat disheartened by firearm and […]
Oh, look, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence is intentionally violating a photographer’s copyright.
Color me surprised.
No, not really. "Gun control" extremist organizations have a long–standing history of violating copyrights in their unending crusade to demonize and dehumanize firearm owners and carriers, which bring us back to an interesting point that comes up time and time […]
Yesterday, I accurately said that there was nothing I could add to the letter A Girl and Her Gun wrote to those who would deprive her of her rights, and I stand by those words; however, coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous, and here I am… shall-we-say "expanding" on her driving point.
I found myself re-(re-?)reading Fallen Angels recently (available free online through Baen, if you […]
I do not read Joan Peterson‘s (aka "Japete") misnamed weblog "Common Gunsense", simply because the level of derangement that woman exhibits frankly frightens me, but the cost of that restraint on my part is that I miss out on a great deal of blogfodder, which, if this post is any indication, might be just as well for my blood pressure and opinion of humanity.
To cut straight to […]
This is me, being about as speechless as I get:
Who needs guns then? Well, hunters need guns for the sport. Some people need guns for their profession– law enforcement, security guards, people who transport cash from businesses to banks, etc., gang members, drug cartels, felons, robbers and those who, without a gun, could not do their jobs.

Two of the most important axioms of any argumentative or combative situation are, "Know yourself," and "Know your enemy," and in the ongoing battle to secure and defend our individual rights from those who would whimsically and arbitrarily deny them to us, both of those continue to be relevant.
However, one of the most important instructions of any situation is, "Follow the money."
Where am I going with this?
Unfortunately, I am starting to see a slightly surprising amount of confusion from my fellow pro-rights activists regarding the tactics of our opponents, so I thought I would take a moment, consolidate my comments, and offer up some clarification here.
Put simply, Joan Peterson is an adherent to the belief that if you repeat a lie often enough, and with enough conviction, people will start believing it is true.
… And I do not feel the slightest bit of shame for it.
By now, you already know my opinion of the probably-soon-to-be-law in Florida barring doctors from discussing firearms with their patients, but just to recap – it is stupid, it is unnecessary, and it pointlessly gives ammunition to the anti-rights cultists.
However, it is how those anti-rights cultists are employing that ammunition […]
The anti-rights cultists of America frequently like to pretend that they have the market cornered on "gun violence" victims*, and often parade these individuals around in front of the media as a way to generate empathetic, emotional support for their blatantly bigoted positions.
Unfortunately for them, that act is nothing more than a farce.
I am sure my regular readers will remember John Green, the man who lost his daughter in […]
Last week, Joan Peterson (aka “Japete” on her misnamed “Common Gunsense” weblog – link intentionally omitted) took it upon herself to appear before the Minnesota House Public Safety Committee as a representative of the anti-rights, pro-criminal cult of America, and speak out against the bill relating to the use of deadly force in defense of home and person (Castle Doctrine, in short), pistol permit renewals, and the comprehensiveness of […]
As Weer’d reminded me, so I shall remind you: tomorrow marks the beginning of Chris’ “Anti-Gun Blog Boycott”, and I would sincerely ask that you do not visit, do not comment upon, and do not do anything that would add to the traffic of the various anti-rights weblogs during that boycott – Chris proposes 72 hours, Weer’d is extending that to the 9th, and I see no reason not to run […]
